"Great addition to guest bedroom"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

This porcupine alebrije sits on a table in my guest bedroom, along with some other items from Mexico. I live in Guanajuato, Mexico, now, so the decor wouldnt be complete without an alebrije, and this one is bright and fun.
